,000,000.20000000 dollars, the next four candidates according to these figures, tim pawlenty, ron paul, jon pawlenty, ron paul, jon huntsman, that does not even add up to 15 million. it is still seen as a slow money raising cycle? guest: because mitt romney had done the things that were necessary to get off to a fast start. relative to the rest of the field, however, when you look at this point in the 2008 cycle, mitt romney raised more than $20 million. rudy giuliani, $17 million. john mccain, the eventual nominee, $11 million. three big guns out front, competing against an open democratic field, we did not know that president obama's fund-raising operation would be the juggernaut that it turned out to be. at that point, with an unknown opponent, there was more fund- raising by individual candidates and folks using the gop nomination than we see at this point in a comparable cycle where we do know who the opponent is going to be. they know that money will be important and yet the numbers are substantially behind. it is disappointing. it has to be a letdown for the republican field. host: kenneth vogel w

the speeches from this weekend, the speech speeches from- president obama and senator jon kyl of arizona. >> the plan would force us to relive this crisis in a few short months. it would hold washington captain to politics once again. that is not acceptable. any solution to avoid default must be bipartisan. it must have the support of both parties that were sent here to represent the american people. not just one faction of one party. there are multiple ways to resolve this problem. congress must find common ground on a plan that can get support from both parties in the house and the senate. it has got to be a plan i can sign by tuesday. the parties are not that far apart. we have agreement on how much needs to be cut to reduce our deficit. we have agreed on how to tackle entitlement reform. there are plenty of ways out of this mess. there is little time. we need to reach a compromise by tuesday so that our country will have the ability to pay its bills on time. bills like contract we have signed with thousands of american businesses. if we don't, we could use our -- lose our country's a
'm the senate republican whip jon kyl of arizona. by now, but americans the lawmakers are engaged in a difficult debate about the debt ceiling, the legal limit to the amount of money the federal government can borrow. the debt ceiling is currently set at a little more than $14 trillion and if the congress and the president don't reach an agreement to raise it by tuesday, the treasury secretary tells us america will no longer be able to pay its bills. the consequences of missing this deadline could be severe. it is precisely because of washington barrault's so much money, more than 40 cents out of every dollar spent. spending would have to shrink by 40% quickly. what is more, markets would likely respond, dropping in value and hurting their retirement savings of millions of americans. republicans have tried to work with democrats to avoid this result and put our country on a better path, but we need them to work with us. we start from the understanding that the reason the debt ceiling is a problem is because of runaway washington spending. republicans have been united in the belief that raising t
leader represented house republicans, jon kyl for senate republicans, and that vice president. they have been talking about all lot of cuts, both to discretionary and non- discretionary spending, but there the problem is that it does not seem to add at to what they would need to meet the president's requirements to get the country through the next election. that would be somewhere in the area of $2.4 trillion increase in the debt ceiling. john boehner has made it clear that for any increase in the debt ceiling, they will not need more than a one-one increased ratio. quite frankly the democrats have not agreed to that level of cuts. it looks like they will go back today, scour potential areas of saying that they have talked about, and see how much they can agree to and go from there. agree to and go from there. host: in your article from yesterday's with the headline " boehner tells conference big deal no longer operative," you said that there were criticisms for the grand bargain. he pays -- he faced opposition from eric cantor. they presented a united front before the gop conference whi

want to thank you for that. and jon, you're doing a good job. so i like that you're actually -- >> is this a setup? >> no. there's no comma, but coming here. i like that you're already attacking the issue of finding the regulations that are not very useful anymore. and don't serve the purpose. so good job. that's exactly what my bill that's in a different committee wants every agency, independent agency, to do. and it's not -- it's to provide the flexibility and i want to talk to you, sorry, commissioner northrop. >> ann is fine. >> because we can sit here and say good job on cribs. but it's amazing to me that we're sitting here talking about bicycles and a.t.v.'s and large cars and trucks that, 6, 7, 8-year-olds play with but yet we're regulating them. so you have to admit, mr. adler, there's some absurdity to the law. do you agree with the rules and regulations -- >> i think that congress basically got the law right. and what you're talking about is a mandate that congress impose, not that the commission imposed. but there are always some portions of the law that need to be
